Golfer takes off pants to hit shot at Honda

The Honda Classic has a few water hazards, and a PGA golfer ran into one Friday, creating one of the more unique moments of the second round.

It all happened on the sixth hole when 35-year-old Shawn Stefani decided to play a shot out of the water.

It's not uncommon for a player to take his shoes and socks off and roll up his pants, but Stefani took off a little more clothing. Well, a lot more clothing. 

The Texas native not only decided to completely take off his trousers, but also disposed of his shirt as well, only leaving on his underwear while attempting to blast the ball out of the lake.

His unorthodox approach must have worked because the Golf Channel reports he landed his ball safely on the fairway. 

Despite the creativity, Stefani ended up with a five-shot bogey for the hole and a 72 for the round, missing the weekend cut.
